Human Rights Eve and Salvador Espriu Remembrance

On 21st June 2013 we celebrated the traditional yearly dinner at school to close the school year with families, students, teachers and staff. It was held outside at the school’s football playground on a full moon night and it was called “The Eve of Human Rights” because music, poems and dances which students represented on stage were all vindicating our human rights, especially the rights to freedom of thought, education and home.

The Comenius team also presented our closure video on Comenius, which we will upload very soon, where our principal, students, parents, and teachers involved in this Comenius project talk about their experiences and the project’s impact on school and on their lives.

Since it was the anniversary of the birth of Salvador Espriu (1913-1985), one of our best Catalan poets, some of his poems denouncing the lack of freedom of thought and speech and the violation of human rights during the Franco’s dictatorship in Spain were read and interpreted by our students while other students played or danced to the music. On these links below you can learn more about our universal poet.

We also said goodbye to some of our most compromised students in this Comenius project finishing their studies at our high school. You’ll remember the twins Elena and Mariona, and also Aleth and Sara. Apart from being great individuals, they have participated in several Comenius mobilities and most interestingly, they have drawn three mini-projects of action in the framework of Comenius to improve the lives of our educative community and bring human rights to life in SES Vallbona.

Below you can see some pictures on the “Eve of Human Rights” at SES Vallbona d’Anoia.
